The adoption of computer aided engineering (CAE) powered by high performance computing (HPC) is one of key factors fueling the re-birth of manufacturing. SGI offers an HPC environment that is ideal for CAE solutions. This article is part of 5 article series on how HPC is helping to fuel the growth in manufacturing.
This week article on HPC and Manufacturing is focused on another major consideration for today’s manufacturers which is the the pressure to reduce costs. This, in turn, is driving the need to reduce expensive physical prototyping through the use of modeling and simulation earlier in the design process.
